Frequently asked questions:

Keep a distance of 150m to the shores. You can get to the shore only if you want to dock the boat by keeping a angle of 90° to the shores and a maximum speed of 10km/h.

Since damage occurs frequently during landing maneuvers, we recommend only the most trained skippers to land. During the briefing, however, we will show you on a map various possibilities of simple docking. If you book a skipper, you can relax, he will be happy to show you the best sights and bring you to the best restaurants. It is possible to visit a island or maybe a italian market, or stop on a beach for a swimmbreak.

To get to the Borromee islands, you need about 1 1/4 hour. So in one hour you get about to Verbania.

There is a public parking next to asconautica, you can also find a parking garage at the local store Migros (about 5 min walk). As a alternativ you could go get free parking at the bagno pubblico (about 8 min walk).
